Helpful(?)Sisterhood
Frozen North
Baloonatic

These are in "Features" but none are longer than 23 minutes.
The IMDb lists them as shorts.

The Helpful Sisterhood, The Frozen North, and The Balloonatic are all in the Silent Films sub-collection. The Baloonatic and one of two copies of The Frozen North are also in the Short Format Films sub-collection. The Helpful Sisterhood and this copy of The Frozen North should be in Short Format Films, too.

This needs to be moved to Silent Films and Short Format Films.

Helpful Sisterhood, I don't know anything about. However.

Balloonatic and Frozen North are shorts by Buster Keaton, and back in the 20s any film 20 to 30 minutes long (don't know exactly what the differentiation is on time, here) was considered a short.

But. If the other 17 of his independant shorts are here, then Balloonatic and Frozen North should stay here. Personally, considering that Keaton only has the 19 independent shorts and 12 (11 not counting 1920s The Saphead) independant features (Saphead was not an indpendant, but was his first feature, 1920, so PD and if it's not here, then it should be), they should all be in the same place. Same goes for the 15 (13 still known to exist) Keaton-Arbuckle shorts.

No. I'm not a Keaton fan. I'm a Damfino!
